Stairway to heaven!

The effect of the facade of the Institut du Monde Arabe the is like a giant Islamic pierced screen, giving great significance and an audacious brilliance to this remarkable building. From the inside it is like looking into the light and seeing a "Stairway to heaven".


On an other level it reminds me of "Ascending and Descending" a lithograph print by the Dutch artist M. C. Escher
